The programme aims to introduce students to research in the History of Art at the highest level and develop research interests in Scottish Art and Visual Culture.

This is the only masters programme in Scottish Art in the UK. It combines close academic study with an internship in a local institution. Edinburgh is without doubt the best city for studies in Scottish Art. Its art collections in this area are world-class.
